There are three different kinds of locks that can be installed on your garage door.
1. The Opener Unit
When the opener and the door are in the down position, the door can’t be opened manually.
2. T- handle Locks
These locks use a T-handle on the outside of the door and need a key to unlock it. When you turn the handle it pulls or pushes a bar thru the track of the door locking it down or releasing it to open the door.
3. Slide Lock
It’s a small metal box with a slide handle that is located inside on the left or right side of the door. It just slides a bar thru the track to lock it down. At the end of the bar, there is a hole for a padlock on it if needed. Slide locks are a very simple design but also quite effective when used together with a padlock.
